Tree Register of the British Isles

(TROBI)

A charity devoted to recording notable trees including those that are rare, very old, otherwise historically significant or the biggest of their species (champion trees), measured as height or main-stem diameter. TROBI is now more commonly known as the ‘Tree Register’ since there is also a Tree Register of Ireland maintained by the Tree Council of Ireland.
